Volume level histogram - How to?

I need something very simple, but I do not know how to make it.

The Need:
I need a simple, non-flashy volume level histogram where the volume history moves across the screen drawing the current volume with the past volume levels trailing, much like the levels in a audio editor, but, continuously and indefinitely in real-time - Keeping the visual volume history of the last half hour - or perhaps have that timeframe variable.

The Reason:
I work for a community radio station along with 50 or so other volunteers. Volunteer DJ's often have a hard time adjusting the volume of their mic's to match the volume of the music. If they could see the history, they could see that their mic is too hot, or that they need to put up the volume a bit. With a visual history, they can compare their speaking volume with the audio on either side of it. I know there are many other community stations with the same issues, and this would be a very useful tool. I have looked for other application to accomplish this but there is nothing out there.

Given the awesome things I have seen from this community, I expect this to be a pretty simple thing to do, but I don't really know how. Could someone please point me in the right direction.

Thanks, I really appreciate it.
